La Manga friendlies 2017: England v Norway and Sweden
« on: January 19, 2017, 08:15:41 AM »
Out there in snowy Spain...

England Women's pre-Euro 2017 "warm weather training" takes place in snow storm

A trio of very interesting games, to start the year for these three teams.

It begins today with Sweden v Norway at the Pinatar Arena.

Mark Sampson's side will face Norway, 11th in the FIFA world rankings, on Sunday 22 January in La Manga, and sixth-placed Sweden on Tuesday 24 January at the Pinatar Arena.

Kickoffs 5pm (UK time) according to most sources, but coverage and streams aren't mentioned.

Team changes include Sophie Baggaley in the squad, with Karen Bardsley injured, and Notts' Rachel Williams back in the squad after four years. The Norwegian team includes Birmingham's Andrine Stolsmo.

Coming from a goal down, a 2-1 win for Norway against Sweden. All goals within seven minutes of each other: Sweden's Sofia Jakobsson opened the scoring after 20 minutes, Norway hit back seconds later through Lisa–Marie Kalseng Utland, and Kristine Minde made it 2-1.

BBC women's football homepage mentions live streaming of Norway-England today at 5pm - maybe on this preview page.

And the She Kicks interview with Mark Sampson also says the same for the Sweden game on Tuesday. Sampson sounds like he's trying to get excuses in early!

The full Norway v England game is up on The Beautiful Game, with Norwegian commentary - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vujY16ffgoU

Or failing that, highlights on FATV - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4IWiKF2Wa4



Keep driving down those expectations... Headline: "England can afford to lose games at the moment". Could that be the perfect summary of English sporting history?

That's the preview of the England-Sweden match, which is on tonight (Tuesday) 5pm, streaming on BBC and the Svenska Fotbollförbundet site.
